Time is running out!

The 4th of July is almost here and your little one wants to strut their Patriotic best too don't they? Check out my shop for a sale on Patriotic woolies for your little darlin's and if I don't have what you're looking for try katidids for a further selection of newly reduced but fully Patriotic goodies.

Back to this century.

Now that the power is back on, not complaining, we needed the rain and it's not so hot until the sun comes up tomorrow, that is, I have a picture of the latest off the needles. He's a cutie and he's not wearing lipstick like his little sister was.

Okay, power is flickering again so I'm out of here for right now. Knitting can be done by candle if need be.

It's raining, it's pouring!

And I have a frightened dachshund laying on one of my feet with his head resting on the other one so the thunder can't get him. That makes it more than a little difficult to do a happy dance because it's honest to goodness raining out there and it has been for about 15 minutes now. That may not sound like much but the average shower around here, if we even get one has been less than 5 minutes. Wheeeee!!

Geaux Tigers!!!

Ever seen a whole state do a happy dance? Most of it at any rate. LSU just beat Texas 11-4 in another really good game to win the College World Series. Don't let the score fool you, it wasn't looking good at first and I knitted to keep from making too much of a fuss and distressing the little man who should be used to mommy and sporting events by now.


I started him right after the game last night when the boys seemed to have lost their mojo. It's another phone shot so the color isn't good but take my word, it's purple and gold and it worked, that's al that matters.

Off to join in the dancing. Y'all have a good night.

And no rain.

Yep. It has stopped already. I'm stunned.


It is really hard to take a photograph of rain but that's it pouring off the corner of the house. The good news is it is finally raining for the first time in recent memory; the bad news is for a while there the weather somewhere knocked out Dish for about half an inning of the LSU/Texas game. More good news is that Dish is back now and LSU is still leading!

Geaux Tigers!

It is never

a good sign when the Weather Bug turns red down there at the bottom of the screen. That means it's searingly hot out there. It wasn't supposed to hit 100 today but the weather elves didn't get that memo, I see. Ugh.

I'm meeeelting...

Any of you out there with an excess of rain or even clouds please feel free to send it all this way. I can't even remember the last time we had some rain and even 97 with a heat index of 101 feels cooler when it isn't so bloody bright out there. Perfect weather to stay the heck inside, watch the College World Series and knit. Or anything else so long as I do not have to set foot out the door.

As proof that I haven't actually melted yet because I have stayed inside and knitted I have pictures:

A nifty little skirty for the Fourth of July! It should be up in the shop soon.

Y'all stay cool, I actually have to venture into the sun for a few minutes. Blagh!

Y'all have fun. I have laundry to do, it was dog washing day and I got as wet as they did.

In case I haven't mentioned it Louisiana summers are humid. Very humid. As in we grow gills to deal with it. I neglected to knit gills into these shorties so they were taking 40 forevers to dry but I fixed that. Rather than ripping them out to add gills I bought them a fan, a tiny, 4" across fan, it's adorable. Earned me some odd looks from the family, then they figured out I bought a fan for the knitting and they shook their head and walked away. You'd think they'd be used to it by now.

On to the now dry shorties:
I almost had a fit when I looked at the picture and thought one cuff was longer than the other but it's a white section last thing before the cuff. *Whew* I have made stupid mistakes like that before but I usually catch them sooner.

Y'all have a good evening, I have family to go visit.

Good Vibrations

Is there a higher compliment to a knitter than to see a knitted gift being used to strings as you intended, especially without it being called to your attention?

Elder Child had fun with this rolling. She matched the dice she rolled to the color of the project she was rolling for, silly Elder Child.

This was so much fun I might try it every couple of months for random things from the shop.

Y'all have a good night.
